Agency submission on ecological sustainability


About the submission

Primary Industries and Resources South Australia (PIRSA) Fisheries, in association with the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), have prepared this report.

The purpose of this report is to provide Environment Australia with comprehensive detail of the management arrangements for South Australian beach-cast seagrass and marine algae fisheries, against the ‘Guidelines For The Ecologically Sustainable Management Of Fisheries’, set out in the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (the EPBC Act).

It is intended that this report serve as the first step in the process to have beach-cast seagrass and marine algae taken from South Australian waters, placed on the list of exempt native species for export, under Part 13(A) of the EPBC Act, for the five year period from 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2008.

Invitation for comment closed Wednesday 11 February 2004.
